You know now that you put it that way, Your right it is I don't know wither it shows commitment or shows that I should be committed. My wife says that it shows commitment and that is why she says she can trust me. But I agree with you I'm just crazy. Oh I got 3 more things to put up just yesterday.  :D  Yes to do that site I had to go to Cable to do other wise would have taken months to get started.

I didn't say you were crazy, I said you're obsessed. Especially with the "mistake" thing.

(After all, a neat living space is the sign of a disturbed mind, according to one of the books I was reading. Why should a neatly organized website be any different?)

Um...wireless what? I mean you could theoretically have a wireless router connected to dial-up (though that would be weird).

<-- has DSL

An absolute joy to use... I wouldnt go back to dial-up if you paid me. I was recently reminded of how painfully slow dial-up is, when the DSL service went down one night *shudders*

@aklaus: There are "wireless" ISPs now, I know here, they are quite popular since you dont need a phone line, or a cable service to get broadband internet. You just get a wireless router that you plug into the PC, and it picks up the signal from the ISP's nearest base-station. Cell operators here are also doing "wireless broadband" using their 3G networks.

HomePNA, i. e. shared DSL. Cheaper than having a cable or DSL connection of my own. The technology is one of those intermediate things that got common before DSL got reasonably cheap for most people, but currently being phased out.

It's cool though, calling tech support and they give me the password to remotely boot the DSL router in the basement of my building. :lamo: Of course, if I had my own DSL, it would just be a matter of finding the box and the off switch. :P
